  1. congrats on the opening, i was there ne of the first 20 or so, would have been first in line and gt the year of free chicken, however one site said 10am another said 10:30, and the one even said 1pm. I waited patiently I understand they are new and learning and I joked around and kept it light, when i was call up my order was still nt quit ready, still cool again learning curve. I gt home open my delicious chicken tenders….. except one thing tey were original and I had ordered spicy…..that made me sad. the wait would have been ok but at least make it the correct order… still want my spicy chicken and a a better chance at the year of free chicken… all in all it was still very god all employees were very nice, and now many of them know me…..HI IM ROBERT!…lol

  2. Okay, after reading about Church’s Chicken opening today, just awhile ago, I sent my husband to get us two chicken dinners. He brought back two three piece mixed dinners, that came with a drink, and I got fries, and he got mashed potatoes. I got one of their honey biscuits, but they forgot to put one in my husband’s dinner, as he always to forgets to look in the bags before he leaves. The chicken was tasty and just right. He brought home a little white foam rubber chicken with the Church logo on it, a pen case with the logo, some candy, and a new ink pen with the logo, and a coupon if you buy so many dinners the next is free. I looked at the receipt, and here is what I thought was weird. Instead of just adding the state sales tax, which I believe is 6.5%, because my husband just bought a spark plug at Auto Zone, and that was what was on that ticket, as it stated total tax 6.5%, our receipt from Church’s had it like this: our bill total was 7.49 and 7.49 totaling 14.98 before added tax, then it added the tax like this-county .08 cent, city tax .68 cent, and state tax .60 cent…..okay, I have NEVER seen this on any of my receipts, just state sales tax. By my calculations I took the amount pretax and added 6.5 percent sales tax and I came up with $15.95, but our receipt total after taxes was $16.34 which is .39 cent too much, as I figured it. So come on, that is over 9% sales tax people!!!! I am using my calculator. What is going on???? $14.98 plus 9% is $16.32 and our total was $16.34 ?????????

  3. The worse chicken I’ve ever tasted. It was very dry, unlike the one the one on Orange Bloom Trail. Will never dine in there again

  4. This is the worse experice I’ve had with chruch’s chicken, the chicken was very very hard unlike the one OBT.I Will not visit the store again
